    $1.2 million for a one bedroom condo, that needs a major decor upgrade? No thank you. The garage is a nice feature in a condo, although how rare is large garage space in Chicago? I would hope the Ferraris come with the garage, but I’m sure they don’t.

    If I wanted a nice Ferrari garage in the Chicago area I’d buy Cameron Frye’s house.

    Awesome to see Michael and Katharina Leventhal’s condo on here , but I didn’t know they were selling ! I met them through mutual friends of my uncle at the Cavillino Classic Ferrari Show in Palm Beach . Michael owns Ronsley Special Events, a Chicago based production design company for corporate clients . Even though his condo is very outdated, ( the glass block glass sucks ) his garage is the bomb ! Michael owns millions and millions of dollars worth of vintage cars. I looked up some info and his collection is now about 25 cars including :

    – 1950 Ferrari 166 MM Lemans Berlinetta
    – 1953 Ferrari 340 MM Lemans Spyder
    – 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Tour deFrance alloy race car
    – 1961 Ferrari 250 GT short wheel base alloy body
    – 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB4
    – 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB4 Daytona Spyder
    – 1974 Ferrari Dino GTS with only 1,300 miles!
    – 1961 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud
    – 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud
    – 1974 Jaguar XKE V-12 conv.
    – 1956 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing …etc.

      JUST the vehicles you listed are probably worth at least 8 million dollars, probably more. Sorta makes you wonder what this guy is doing with such a (relatively) small & inexpensive condo.

        I was going to ask the same thing. And I realize the garage is climate controlled, but why store them in a climate that can be as harsh as Chicago? East or west coast S’il vous plait!

          As harsh as Chicago?! I’ll have you know that it hasn’t snowed yet and is 40-50F outside. Besides, winters in Chicago are better than nonstop rain, man-eating mosquitos, and mile after mile smelly, useless swampland and encroaching suburban sprawl.

          The condo itself is a bit goofy and outdated, and in a way, I like it. Although I’m sure the view are great, the interior is reminiscent of many (significantly less expensive and larger) post-war homes. The Lakeview tower itself is pretty ugly (it is from the 60s), and the garage is pretty tacky. The residence is worth the price imo, but is nothing spectacular.

      Holy mother of a collection. Wow.

      I am going to go out on a limb here and assume with a collection like that this place is just to sleep at or entertain people when he is in the city and he has some monster house out in Lake Forest or one of the other suburbs.

    With that much garage space, i’d be dying to know what the HOA’s are for this combo.
